“I’m listening to Ntate Mosimane [saying that they are] underdogs? I beg to differ,” Komphela told the media at the Chiefs/Sundowns press conference in Parktown today.
“The underdog tag it’s such a dangerous one because as I always say; ‘the universe favours the underdog,’ so maybe Ntate Mosimane is seeking some favour from something divine… but I’m not going to allow him to seek a favour. There are no underdogs. They are deadly!
“Their achievements are clear! Maybe one could say it’s one hell of a match… and it’s likely to be a match that could decide the championship, but April is a hectic month. Lots of matches… seven matches in four weeks. And I’m sure by the end of April it will be clearer what’s going to happen and who is going where.
“But that they are there underdogs… never! We are not going to buy that! We will give them the respect they deserve and their achievements are clear, so we just have to get on with our business.”
